A77 Movie mode (1600 ISO limit?!)

Hello,

After receiving my A77 today, I decided to try out the movie mode. Turns out that it is limited to ISO 1600, which is insufficient to shoot, say a birthday party lit with candlelight at f/3.5 (auto-set). I tried bumping up the ISO past 1600 but it wouldn't let me do it, despite the fact that it seems like 9 normal pixels are being combined to form 1 movie pixel.

Anyone have an idea why this is the case?
